“Whatever God demands from you, He himself will faithfully do it, in style”
You are a step away into fulfillment. That one step into good health, finding the right partner,discovering your purpose, fulfilling a career goal or living in total victory in all facets of life, has birth a deep longing in our empty hearts throughout human history, for answers. The quest for fulfillment and the pursuit of happiness by the masses has drowned many citizens of this world into the sea of frustration, stress, disappointment and the lack of fulfillment at every scale of their life. The reason being that, we have given our attention to the wrong prescriptions and formulas of the natural man. Tons and tons of believers have been hypnotized by the noise makers, to the neglect of the Godly principle of tapping into being. We are always caught up in doing instead of resting in the overflowing current of the quality life of God.
Are you in search for the next guru on TV to give you a formula or the token and canticle Prophet, who boasts of having the answers to take you into a blissful destination? When we are at one with divine influence (grace), no matter the color of your skin, economic status, tribe or geographical location, you have the power to make it. In essence life becomes effortless. This sounds like laziness or a prescription for passivity? Friend, doing nothing is laziness…the life of rest is about surrendering and alignment to a whole new world of God’s unlimited grace through you, for an uncommon possibilities. You become a walking warehouse of the enabling power of God to stand before every challenge with deep conviction for supernatural change.
He who calls you is faithful, who also will do it. 1 Thess 5:24
You will agree with me my friend, that sometimes we all become so overwhelmed with uncertainties which cast gloom over the future, and limits acceleration in our own callings and journeys. All kinds of thoughts begin to flood over the brain with a tsunami-like force; without breathing space to escape from the prison of one’s own thoughts. Your belly begins to bloat with regret, and the inner critics begin to talk you out of your purpose in life. These moments are always not pretty… you don’t feel the sense to keep holding on to the towel in your hand but to let it fizzled out into oblivion. When the odds are against you and the writings on the wall seems to guarantee a no way out; as a child of God, quitting is not an options.
Do you find yourself at the dead-end of life? Writing a suicidal note, going through a hard time getting a job or guiding a company to peak performance, feeling
defeated, bad report of the doctor, no sign of success in any area of your life or dealing with an addiction are all limitation hurdles one needs to overcome. There is nothing in the realm of the Kingdom of Christ, called dead ends!! Dead ends are the perception of a mind which has lost alignment with the truth of God’s enabling power, which is available for all who will believes in Him. Here is the secret for an exponential breakthrough my friend.. “every assignment in your life, if its God’s ordain… certainly have 110% of heavens backing, irrespective of what happens today or tomorrow”. What God demands from your life, (you can smile on this one) is what He will faithfully, carry out!! I say it again; He will faithfully bring it to pass.
Do I have to worry and be afraid, if God will do it? You do not have what it takes on your own power to navigate through untested terrains in life, to make things happen in your own terms and ways. The good news is that; “You can fulfill any life assignment or purpose which seem unreachable or impossible in any sense, as you learn to surrender through faith in the work-ability of God. God’s power swallows your weakness and questions with tangible supernatural solutions. The frustration in the life of most believers is as a result of trying too much. Most believers make it their own business to conjure some form of magic they have no ability to do to beautify God’s will. Self reliance is a serious cancer which has crept seriously into the Church of Jesus Christ over many centuries ago. Precious one, sink this glorious truth into your heart, and let it dominate your emotions, will and mind. You will ignite a brand new perspective in your spirit towards life and see God turn the impossible situation around, without any sweat. Jesus and the early Church were a model of this principle of trust. Paul states that clearly; “He who calls you is faithful, who also will do it… (1 Thes 5:24 NKJV)
If this truth still sounds like a doctrine of passiveness, then listen to what Jesus said in regards to the Fathers activity through Him. “Then Jesus answered and said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself, but what He sees the Father do; for whatever He does, the Son also does in like manner”.John 5:19 (NKJV) Jesus came to this earth to show us the dynamics of God. He never depended on His humanism in accomplishing the Fathers task. He humbled himself, (He tapped into the activity of His Father) even to the point of death. At the cross, the episode was a demonstration of a life under complete obedience to the quality life of God to fulfill the very demand of heaven. Why was Jesus able to sustain physical pain and all the negative emotions He has to walk through? He was able to love because, He learned to plug into the wells of love through faith in His Father instead of the toxic vibration of the Pharisees and the Jewish community.
Jesus, unveils this powerful and profound principle which was hidden from man, after the original sin in the garden. This is the Christed principle of total surrender and connectedness to an ocean of grace, which causes one to bear much fruit, even if you find yourself in a dark hole; “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing”. “John 15:5 (NKJV)
Impossibility is absolutely nothing when we are plugged into Christ. In Him is life and through Him are we complete. Whatever your needs are…Jesus life is your sufficiency. alleluia!! Peace, joy, hope, love, and all the Christian virtues that shapes us to be considered as a victorious soldier of Christ is not a self effort or discipline act. Fruit bearing is the direct work of the Spirit of Christ in the life of the believer who sets His mind and affections on Christ, instead of following a certain form of legalistic rules or rituals. You can’t bear fruit without spirit rest.There has been many a time in my personal journeys, that I have felt it’s my own business and responsibility to make things work. This attitude sounds positive to our carnal minds on this side of eternity, but it has an underlying limitations of stress, worry, anxiety, disappointments, inadequacies, limitations, scarcity, shortsightedness etc. which so well plagues the falling man.
I have gone through emotional burnt out, failure mentality, fear and a host of other negative emotions. I saw the light of peace shining in my heart and impacting everything that I do in life for unusual turnaround, because I realized that my existence in life is by divine mandate, and the one who call me into design, will surely order my steps, if I learn to rely on Him totally day by day, as my source of everything. I don’t fret over anything; I chose to trust Him when even circumstances don’t make sense to my peanut mind. alleluia! Beloved, you can break any form of limitation in your life today, as you learn to take the yoke of the job from your neck by resting in His indwelling ability through you, to fulfill His plan effortlessly. You have no need to worry and be burdened about your assignment or the mountain before you. Trying is not the normal Christian life, and a model of the quality life of God for us, as believers. From A to Z, Christianity is a life of resting in God whiles He worked through us, effortlessly. There is calmness, humility and assurance in surrendering than human efforts and self centeredness.
Be still my friend!! To His covenant children at the banks of the Red Sea, who were so traumatized by the galloping horses and chariots of Pharaoh and his legions of soldiers, in pursuit for the dear lives of God’s chosen people en-route to the promised land. The last thing to have crossed the mind of the Hebrews was Pharaoh coming for them after he has pronounce them as free people. Their lack of identity and knowledge of the ability of God brought them to the edge of their weakness. The rays of murmuring and panic was like a robe on the back of the great and the weak among the congregation. Heaven had to kiss the earth one more time to teach us the mode of operation of God, among His own. God spoke to Moses, the leader of the Hebrews and the entire congregation in pilgrim journey to the land flowing with milk and honey, whose heart were melting because of the Egyptians; “to be still and know that He is God” Nothing is impossible with God, when we are still. There is a fantastic truth in that simple phrase “be still”. Are you at rest in the overflowing favor of God or you are conscious of your own inability?
Friend read this verse aloud to your own hearing, repeatedly. It sum up our own distractions in our personal journeys when the odds are too high…
“Exodus 14:11-16 (NET) 11 and they said to Moses, “Is it because there are no graves in Egypt that you have taken us away to die in the desert? What in the world have you done to us by bringing us out of Egypt? 12 Isn’t this what we told you in Egypt, ‘Leave us alone so that we can serve the Egyptians, because it is better for us to serve the Egyptians than to die in the desert!’” 13 Moses said to the people, “Do not fear! Stand firm and see the salvation of the Lord that he will provide for you today; for the Egyptians that you see today you will never, ever see again. 14 The Lord will fight for you, and you can be still.” 15 The Lord said to Moses, “Why do you cry out to me? Tell the Israelites to move on. 16 And as for you, lift up your staff and extend your hand toward the sea and divide it, so that the Israelites may go through the middle of the sea on dry ground”
To stand firm is to work from the platform of the persuasion of God’s word which is the final authority. One can choose to build his house on the rock or on sinking grounds. Jesus (word) is the rock on our feet and the game changer on every situation. Spend time in God’s presence by meditating on the word to set you on alignment with the power of God to annihilate the cascading army of the wicked one. Beloved, you are a step away to a land flowing with milk and honey through surrendering to the provisions of His promise. Always remember; “He who calls you is faithful, who also will do it… (1 Thes 5:24 NKJV)
